Podcast: Rex & Paul Review the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame Awards
This time on Chewing the Fat, Rex and Paul chew the fat on the morning after the third annual Arkansas Food Hall of Fame induction event. They carry on about how hard it is to be on the selection committee and all the wonderful food they get to eat and nice people they get to meet and try to make people feel sorry for them, contrast the red-carpet experience at the Food Hall of Fame event and the Academy Awards, describe the People’s Choice winner and the full list of 2019 nominees and the winners in each juried category—Gone but Not Forgotten, Food Festival, Proprietor, Restaurant (three inductees)—talk a bit about old Orval Faubus, and set the record for the longest it ever took Paul to mention that he is from Imboden. That comes in at the 35-minute mark. Bonus: Rex does his impersonation, with sound effects, of the winner at the Hope Watermelon Festival watermelon-eating contest. Hint: It’s part machine, part Sheriff.
